Larry King is the West Coast Managing Partner of Kaplan Fox, resident in our Oakland and Los Angeles, California offices. He joined the firm in 1994 and became a partner of the firm in 1998.  Larry initially joined the firm in New York, but subsequently relocated to California in 1999.

Larry’s practice focuses on securities litigation, with an emphasis on institutional investor representation, consumer protection litigation and data privacy litigation. For more than twenty years, he has regularly been appointed by courts across the United States as lead or co-lead counsel, or member of a steering committee, on behalf of consumer and investor classes. Larry has also played a substantial role in some of the largest recoveries ever obtained by Kaplan Fox, including In re Bank of America Securities, ERISA and Derivative Litigation (S.D.N.Y)($2.4 billion recovered), In re Apple Device Performance Litigation (N.D. Cal.)($310 million recovered) and In re 3Com Securities Litigation ($259 million recovered).

Prior to joining Kaplan Fox, Larry practiced at the Manhattan (New York County) District Attorneys’ Office under the legendary Robert Morgenthau, where he tried numerous felony prosecutions to jury verdict. He holds a B.S. degree in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (1985) and a J.D. from the Fordham University School of Law (1988).

An active member of both the California and New York state bars, Mr. King has been selected for inclusion in Northern California SuperLawyers each year since 2012.
